Description

At this very moment
There’s a mouse
There’s a small mouse waking up in the early morning sun

And at this very moment
There’s a whale
There’s a blue whale singing whale song, deep beneath the sea

As you sit and read this book
Somewhere there’s a plum
A plum so ripe a worm will come
And eat it for its tea

At This Very Moment is a beautifully poetic bedtime book for children ages 2 and up. Using simple but evocative language, it describes all the wonderful things that are going on around the world right now, this very second. In doing so, it asks the young reader to be present in this moment in time and to feel at one with the giant, magnificent organism that is our planet.

In an entirely organic and unselfconscious way, this book encourages mindfulness and reflection as well as a sense of marvel at the world we live in.

And at this very moment
Somewhere there’s a baby
There are babies everywhere
Drifting off to sleep…
